As a reminder, Signs is accepting submissions for a special issue titled “Gender and the Rise of the Global Right.” We are seeking investigations of the Right’s representational politics, its workings in discourse, mass media, human rights, law, and culture broadly conceived. We welcome submissions from all disciplines, and especially submissions that are engaging across disciplines and that are themselves inter- or transdisciplinary. The issue will be coedited by Agnieszka Graff, Ratna Kapur, and me. Submissions are due by September 15, so please help us spread the word! The full call for papers is available here.
We are also announcing the call for submissions for the 2019 Catharine Stimpson Prize for Outstanding Feminist Scholarship. Designed to recognize excellence and innovation in the work of emerging feminist scholars, the Stimpson Prize is awarded biennially to the best paper in an international competition. Feminist scholars in the early years of their careers (fewer than seven years since receipt of the terminal degree) are eligible to submit. This includes current graduate students. Papers may be on any topic that falls under the broad rubric of interdisciplinary feminist scholarship, and all papers submitted for the Stimpson Prize will be considered for possible publication in Signs. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2018. Please let your colleagues, students, and networks know about this opportunity. The full call is available here.
